What To Expect

Choose a departure time that suits your schedule, then meet a captain at Amalfi’s Darsana Pier. Board your private boat for the day—you have the option to choose between an open boat, speedboat, and larger yacht while booking—then cruise away from Amalfi and towards the island of Capri. You’ll pass a series of elegant villas and fishing villages, including Conca de Marini, Furore, Praiano, and Positano, with the option to stop for a swim at Li Galli, a tiny archipelago where the mythical sirens sung to Ulysses. Leave the Gulf of Salerno and enter the Bay of Naples, where you’ll have gorgeous views of Mount Vesuvius towering over the coastline. When you arrive at Capri, visit the island’s most famous sights passing Faraglioni Rock, the blue grotto, the Punta Carena lighthouse, and more. Capri is perfect for spotting high rock formations, and the captain can bring you to hidden coves that are perfect for jumping into the sea. When you’re ready to lunch, head to shore for a meal in a seaside restaurant; the captain can help you find the perfect place to try a beloved local aperitif of white wine and peaches. This 6-hour cruise concludes with return transfer to Amalfi.

Amazing Cruise
Joseph_Q, Sep 2022
Valerie from Exclusive Cruises was amazing with communicating with us in order to make sure everything was set up, including transportation to/from Naples. The skipper, Sergio, was awesome as well and made sure he gave us the history and info about the beaches and towns. Unfortunately it was too windy and we weren’t able to travel to Capri. We did take Sergio’s recommendation for lunch and it did not disappoint. I highly recommend La Gavitella for lunch. The view, food and customer service were amazing. Overall, the cruise was wonderful. Thanks again to everyone!
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Hi! Thank you so much for your review! I am happy to see that you had an amazing day despite the wind not cooperating! When it comes to recommendations for lunch, our captains are the experts! Come back soon for Capri!
Cancelled trip last...
Mary_L, Sep 2022
Cancelled trip last minute - we had just paid $79 euros to get to the wharf. Lames it on choppy seas but it was a lovely day with 2-3 mph breezes
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Hello Mary, I am sorry that you were upset that this excursion was cancelled. You were booked on the Open Boat. A very small boat. If the captain does not feel that it is acceptable to go out, for the safety of our guests, I can't go against him. Understand that there were strong winds on different parts of the coast, so some areas seemed calm while others were very choppy. I had just finished speaking with another guest that instead on going out, then came in early after 1 hour claiming that the seas were too rough (as I told her). It is exasperating to receive a bad review from someone who said too rough and another who say it was calm and acceptable to go out. Please take down the negative review that you wrote. We didn't cancel to ruin your vacation, we cancelled because the captain felt that it was not advisable to go out. I also took the time to make you a restaurant reservation because you asked me to do that (which you didn't go to and the restaurant called me and asked where you were). I am really shocked that you felt it necessary to publicly leave a bad review. We are such a small company and I manage all aspects. Safety and comfort come first. We are not going to send you out on an open wooden boat with rough sea. Will you please take it down? Thank you, Valeria.
Only way to see the coast
Lindsay_M, Sep 2022
The excursion was amazing from the start. Valeria, the company owner, contacted me right after booking to explain the process and provide her contact information in case of any questions beforehand. Then the day before she contacted us again to let us know drinks would be on board. Our captain, Luigi, was amazing. He took us around and told us all about the areas we saw. He also stopped so we could swim and was amazing to our 2 year old son as well. Thank you guys for an amazing time. Our friends had a blast as well as said it’s the only way to see the coast.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Hi, thank you so much! Wow, I am so glad to know you appreciated our services and had a great time with us! Come back soon with all your friends!
A++ trip.
Rob_R, Jul 2022
We took a private boat trip along the Amalfi coast. We have taken similar trips in Greece, Hawaii, and Australia. This was the best day trip we’ve ever taken. The coast is gorgeous, we could stop often to swim in the ocean, jump off rocks, have lunch, and explore sea caves. Our young guide Luigi was so great. My mom wants to adopt him.
Capri boat tour
MichaelJ_C, Jul 2022
This was an awesome boat ride from Positano to Capri and back. I traveled with my wife, three young kids and my parents and everyone loved it! Swimming amongst the Li Galli islands was definitely a highlight as was exploring various caves and coves along the Capri coastline. Highly recommended!
Boat day in Amalfi
Toni_V, Jun 2022
Our captain Salvatore was amazing. I am a large woman with MS and use a walker. I so wanted to do this boat tour for my four kids and watch as they swam in the Mediterranean Sea. At first it didn’t seem like I could manage getting in the boat due to my mobility problems but Salvatore encouraged me and with others help I was able to get in. Then the day was amazing for the kids. Salvatore constantly made sure I was as comfortable as I could be and even stayed with me on the boat when we buoyed for lunch. He was so good to me and kind. My kids had a fabulous time. They swam in a natural pool, jumped off rocks into the sea and swam in grottos. Best idea I had and so worth the money- honestly it was so reasonable given we had a private boat for 7 hours. Gratzie my new friend Salvatore
Capri private boat tour
Lisa_E, Jun 2022
Francesco was our captain. This was the second time we got Francesco for a private boat tour. He is very knowledgeable. We toured around the island of Capri on the boat and got to swim several times off the boat. We had lunch in a restaurant on the beach that has been around since 1902. It was so much fun. I would highly recommend Francesco and this tour!
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hi Lisa! I am so happy that you were able to be with us twice! There is so much to experience in this area. It was a pleasure to have you, please come back again soon!
Family Trip to Amalfi Coast
marisabelmone, Oct 2021
We had a wonderful day. The views to Amalfi Coast from the ocean are amazing. Our captain Enzo is a fine young gentleman and mixed very well with our group. He took us to the perfect swimming spots, showed us some amazing caves, arrange our lunch in Capri Island and gave us some time to look around. A must do tour if you visit Amalfi!
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Thank you for the lovely review, I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your time on the water with us! Come back soon!
Bernadette_B, Sep 2021
Let me start with Vincenzo made this trip complete and perfect. He patiently explained and let us tour the coast of Amalfi to Capri and back. He even settled a bazillion dollar bet (in my favor of course) with the locating one of the most beautiful places - Furore. This week has been spectacular and the best day was culminated in the sites and food that VincenZo introduced us to during our trip. Highly recommend NOT to miss this adventure. Thank you al for putting this together and making it available for those even from Chicago.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
I will tell Vincenzo how much fun you had with him, he will appreciate knowing that! Thank you for this great review and yes, Furore is definitely one of the most beautiful, not-to-miss sights on the coast. Spectacular indeed! Please come back again to see us and be well!
Fun with Family
Dawn_B, Sep 2021
Giovanni was the best tour guide. He took us to places that were absolutely beautiful and Showed us a lot of history he was funI and very Accommodating. I would recommend whatever he suggest for doing on a tour. And took us to the best restaurant on the Amalfi coast
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Hi Dawn! Thank you for this review! I will tell Giovanni how much fun you had with him as your captain. We hope to have you back again soon! Be well! Valeria
Amber, Aug 2020
Let me start off by saying that this excursion was one of the best ones we’ve taken. Our Captain Giovanni let us choose what we wanted to do. We told him we wanted to go swimming and see the blue Grotto for sure. So we did that and much more! We went around Capri, ate lunch at a town off of the coast and went swimming at 2 different locations. Our captain called the restaurant and set us up with a table before we even got there. Our lunch was the best Italian food we’ve had! The trip was so relaxing, and the boat was very spacious. We went on the luxury speedboat and I would do it all over again. It was worth every penny. I would definitely recommend this to anyone if you want a nice relaxing day and away from the crowds. Thank you Giovanni!
Response from Host, Aug 2020
Thank you for your wonderful review! I am so happy that you enjoyed the day with us and were able to do everything that you wanted to do. We hope to have you back again soon! Best, Valeria
Book it-you won’t be disappointed
Steve_J, Aug 2020
Took an open boat to Capri from Amalfi and can highly recommend this tour! The boat was amazing (lots of social media posts from the kids!) and Giovanni our captain was excellent. He took us to great swimming spots along the coast and then onto Capri for more swimming and lunch. Very efficient, very friendly, very informative and just a great experience all round - thanks Giovanni!
Response from Host, Aug 2020
Hello Steve- I am so glad that you enjoyed the day! Giovanni is a really great captain (born and raised here he knows all of the best places to see and swim as you know). Thank you for choosing us and we hope to have you back again soon!
kaitylamb, Oct 2019
Highly recommend this excursion. Francesco was our guide and he was great! He was very friendly and knowledgeable. He also spoke great English. We booked the speedboat which was definitely worth the money. Definitely book this!

Luigi our boat driver did a great job! We customized the tour based on what we wanted to see. The waters were a bit rough so we didn’t go to Capri. Instead we spent some time in Positano
Such a perfect day!!
krystaljames1, Aug 2019
Francesco was our captain and he was absolutely perfect! The boat exceeded our expectations. There were 2 adults and 4 teens and we had more than enough room. We spent 2 weeks traveling through Italy and this was by far our favorite excursion. It was money well spent!!

This was truly a wonderful experience. Our captain, Giovanni, was outstanding!. He described the history of the parts of the coast as well as the small islands we passed. We had a wonderful lunch at Merano. He is an excellent, professional ,friendly guide you should ask for. We have so many happy memories now because of Giovanni.
